Region: From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer? Town: Closely associated with the fortunes of nearby Raby Castle and its owners is the pretty Teesdale village of Staindrop in the Yorkshire Dales. The castle, a monument that is open to the public, is one of the grandest in England. Extended and modified over the centuries, the heart of the castle is medieval with a walled garden and 200-acre deer park. Staindrop itself is home to many interesting shops, pubs and cafes, all set round its long village green. The popular market town of Barnard Castle is only five miles away, and is the setting for the Bowes Museum, in addition to its wide range of shops and tea-rooms. The area is a wonderful place for walkers and cyclists with numerous routes throughout the stunning scenery.

Sublime pet friendly cottage
Stayed here with family of 3 adults, 2 children and 3 dogs for a week. It is an absolute stunning place to stay and had more than enough room for us all, the cottage is spacious, well appointed and I had the best nights sleep I’ve had in years, the beds are that good. Whilst you could easily spend your time here never leaving the front door, the walks just around the farm area are amazing and you see different things every time, there’s plenty to do around the area with trips to High Force and Hamsterley Forest highly recommended. The hosts at the cottage are so friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and the sights in it. The children were thrilled to see the sheep being brought onto the farm. Added bonuses are the large field for the dogs to play in and the playground for the children. Honestly, do yourselves a huge favour and recharge your batteries here!!

Everything exactly right!
Wonderful quiet retreat in a lovely-looking stone cottage, modernised within to a very high standard. Handily placed for many attractions in Teeside, Durham, Darlington and Barnard Castle areas. Dog-friendly too, with a field available for exercise.

Perfect holiday cottage
What a lovely cottage! We were greeted by John the owner, who is very friendly and helpful. The cottage is very well equipped and in excellent condition. Field opposite is great for kids and dogs to run free all day, plenty of animals to see on the farm also. It's in a lovely location. Highly recommended

A complete home from home with a friendly welcome
We booked through Sykes Cottages, whose properties we've used very successfully before. The Cote did not disappoint, the property was clean, cosy and well appointed: two great bathrooms with plenty of hot water plus a cloakroom/utility room, a spacious sitting room with three sofas - one each for me and my two girlfriends to crash out on at the end of a strenuous day out! The beds were very comfy - I slept in the room with adult sized bunks and got a really great night's rest every night. Good wifi service which we used extensively. Well equipped kitchen with lovely views. We enjoyed meeting the owners and chatting to them - thanks to them for showing us their own lovely garden :-) I would recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable and modern home-from-home in the area - there's plenty to see and do there.

It is great to hear that the property was a great place for you all to call 'home' whilst you explored the area, and, importantly, that the beds made for a wonderful nights sleep!

Superb master bed
We stayed in the Côte for 3 weks whilst we searched for a property to purchase. The accommodation was excellent with 3 bathroom a laundry room. We made use of the extra bedrooms when oursons came for a weekend. Having lived in the area some 15 years ago we knew local attractions etc. One new attraction at Shildon the National Railway Museum is free and we'll worth a visit. The owners were helpful without being intrusive. We would recommend this Cottage to anybody looking for a excellent well equipped Cottage in wonderful surroundings.

Great little cottage
Very good place to stay. The owners were very helpful with arrangements and everything was exactly as we expected. Nice countryside setting, with some strolls straight from the door. Staindrop itself is a lovely village, with some nice shops/eateries.

Attractive stone building with great facilities
The Cote is an attractive stone building set on a farm with great views out of all windows. The facilities are of high standard with the water from all taps being extremely hot, the underfloor heating also provides you with nice warm feet after a day out in the country, especially during the winter! The kitchen is well proportioned with ample cutlery and crockery. The wooden beams give it a nice "oldy" feel whilst still appearing quite modern. Beds are very comfortable and warm.

Just Brilliant!!
Last minute booking at The Cote due to the owner of our initial cottage booked through Sykes Holiday Cottages being unavailable for the key collection (what a luck that was!) Booked & arrived at The Cote 2 hrs later. Wow!! The Cote is absolutely stunning..very well equipped. Beautiful location and the owners were very welcoming. Loved our stay so much we are going again in a couple of weeks

try to keep me away
what great people John and John and Sarah, they made our stay just like being part of the family. their hard work creating a comfortable get away on a working farm deserves all the praise heaped on them. i love the area and environment and am planning to take my grankids up next time just sitting outside watching the bat flit round your head in the evening was worth the stay. lost for words enjoy
